Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "Attention, all planets of the Solar Federation. Attention..." (Non-dead)

I started to post this in response to Micah's post over at the lunatic fringe eclipse but didn't want to muddy the waters.

"Edit-Can't leave you Rush fans hanging."

Thanks for coming back and pickin' up yo slack.

I saw them last Friday in New Orleans---great show. I took my oldest boy with me and we were walking from the Quarter through the Central Business District to the show and he asked if I knew what street the arena was on. "No, but I feel confident if we keep following these clumps of overweight, middle-age, air-drummin'-n-guitarin' white guys, that we're on the right track." Led us right to the door.
Show was really good and really long. I'll tape the setlist to the end of this post. (Interesting that Rush does an 11-song first set; how far back would you have to go find a goGD show with such a chock-full first set?)

The one song I really wanted them to play (but I knew they would not) was By-Tor and the Snowdog.

Here's a nice By-tor>In the End>In the Mood>Grand Finale from the Exit Stage Left tour.

I was one of those 13ish year old kids who caught the Permanent Waves wave, right into Moving Pictures and ended my musical crush with Signals, after delving deep into their earlier work. I saw them several times in the '80's and loved it. As indicated in the 'eclipse' post below my crush on their music didn't last long, but I have always respected them. Not bad for 3 Canadian rockers, 40 years of making music (24 Gold albums), never a word in the freak parade press, and now philanthropists to boot.

To the 3' song poster, here we go with some song times (and this is just a few)

Hemispheres- 18:03
Xanadu- 11:08
Cygnus X-1 Book I: The Voyage- 10:25
2112- 20:33
By-Tor the Snow Dog- 8:36
The Fountain of Lamneth- 20:01
La Villa Strangiato- 9:37

And all of these were on a LP, not a CD, so we are talking whole sides (for the 18'+). I love some of the names of the songs. It is true that after Moving Pictures the sound of the band changed to more poppy 5' songs or less and a reigning in of Geddy Lee's voice.

Neil Peart. Check out his drum solo on YYZ.

Thank-you for the post TOOTMO! I have to go listen to Working Man really loud.

Lastly, they had one of the most kick ass band logos.

Nice Toot, thanks for the update. I love Rush (the early stuff at least - not much after Signals) I wanted to see them but have not had the chance. Love the setlist! I think sometimes I need to listen to other things than GD once and a while and I think I will put on 2112 tomorrow! And then right back to the fall 72 tour! Hahahahaha

A: Too far.

Yes, but they probably all three minute songs that sound just like did on the albums released 30 years ago -that's the real difference.

Obviously that poster has not seen Rush live. They absolutely slay. Haven't seen them since around 91/92 (with Primus opening!) but they were great. Nice (and funny) to see the recent respect they are getting from the wider music press/fans.

right on BD! started seeing them on their Permanent Waves tour and NEVER saw a bad show. They pour their heart and soul into every show and do deliver.

(that said, I havent seen them in about 7 years so what do I know)
